Giving Back During COVID-19

Giving Back During COVID-19

Adopt A Class knows that for many of you, your commitment to serving our community goes beyond monthly mentoring visits. If you are interested in helping students in need during this time, please review the current opportunities below.

Device Drive

Are you looking to help the students in the districts that Adopt A Class serves in a very tangible way? Consider donating any unused devices that your company has hanging out or that you find around your house! During our time in quarantine, our students are being asked to participate in online learning. Many of our students do not have access to the devices necessary to connect to their teachers, classmates, and online assignments making this a rather urgent need.

If you find that your company, or personal household, has devices that you are willing to donate, please reach out to Kate McCann [email protected] who will handle pickup and delivery to our students. Thank you for all that you do!

St. Vincent De Paul

St. Vincent de Paul provides basic necessities for families in need – the need for services has already increased in response to COVID-19 and we expect it will only continue to grow in the weeks ahead.SVDP remains committed to helping ensure our neighbors have access to the basic necessities throughout this crisis. We are very grateful for your consideration of how you can assist. Please consider giving by visiting the link to SVDP Food Pantry’s Amazon wish list.

COVID-19 Regional Response Fund

In response to the rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic, Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) and United Way of Greater Cincinnati, in partnership with Procter & Gamble, bi3, Fifth Third Foundation, The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation and The Scripps Howard Foundation, have activated a cross-sector regional response to quickly address the critical needs of our community.

The Fund will support those in our communities who are most disproportionately affected by – and most vulnerable to – the health, economic, education, housing and social impacts of the crisis.

By leveraging trusted partnerships, the Fund will provide timely, agile support to local and regional nonprofit organizations, both large and community-based, to address issues of:

  • Food insecurity
  • Housing and shelter
  • Medical response
  • Childcare and eldercare
  • To contribute to the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund, please text RAPID to 91999 or visit United Way website.
